Spring is taking hold of Judy Branch, with the red buds leading the way to the greening of the hills and hollows. It's amazing how much the sight of that odd shade of purple dotting the hillsides inspires the trees to begin pushing out little yellow-green shoots of leaves. My garden spot is plowed & tilled. The peas are coming up. Little shoots are coming up in the flats of okra, tomato, eggplant and basil I started indoors. This week, my main projects are to plant my potatoes and get the deer fence up. Oh yes, and to borrow neighbor Bill's lawnmower and mow the overly enthusiastic grass around my house.
